BitTornado 3.10...


Recommended Posts

Did you install the rpm? Download a torrent file and double click it. If the .torrent extension hasn't been defined a dialog screen will open. Associate it with btdownloadgui.py. If you downloaded the source untar it, put the folder somewhere and when you doubleclick a torrent assosciate it with the bydownloadgui.py file in that folder.


Good luck.

I already have BitTorando on my computer but I am not sure how to set up and fetch software or music etc... It is completed different than I used with LimeWire from windows... I tried to find website about instruction to set up... :unsure:

You need a torrent. (a small file that contains the information needed to dowload the file). This is http://qa.mandrakesoft.com/torrent/Mandrak...10.2rc1.torrent the torrent for Mandrake 10.2. Download it to your pc and then doubleclick it. :) (you could assosciate the extenson in your browser so just clicking the link will bring up bittornado but if for some reason it crashes you will have to search for the torrent again. Better is to keep them on your pc)
